On February 5, 2021, as a part of National Wear Red, many City of Brooksville City Hall employees donned red clothing in support of
Nation Wear Red Day.

City of Brooksville Honors National Wear Red Day

National Wear Red Day is celebrated every year on the first Friday in February. The goal for the day is to make more people aware of the risk that heart disease poses to women, serve as a catalyst for change, and challenges women to know their risk for heart disease and take action to reduce their personal risk.

While nearly 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in women. According to the association’s newly released 2021 Heart Disease and Stroke Statistics, heart disease kills one woman approximately every 80 seconds.


The American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement encourages people to take action through the month of February by:

• Wearing red on National Wear Red Day, Friday, Feb. 5, 2021, to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease. The iconic Red Dress pin and other apparel are available at ShopHeart.org.

• Making a donation to support the lifesaving work of the American Heart Association at WearRedDay.org. Big Lots Foundation will match online donations on National Wear Red Day, up to $333,333.

• Visiting CVS Health and donating at the register until March 6. Donations can also be made online at www.CVSHealth.com/GoRed.

• Signing up to participate in the lifesaving Research Goes Red initiative, a joint collaboration between the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women movement and Verily’s Project Baseline.

• Joining the conversation by using #WearRedDay, #HeartMonth, and #GoRedforWomen on social media.
